This Week at Ace’s: Febraury 20 – 25, 2020

This Week at Ace’s: Febraury 20 – 25, 2020

Greetings, Jazz Fans! Ace Gillett’s Music Director John Olson here to let you know what we have cued up for this week. We’d love to welcome all of you back to see our new renovations as we celebrate our Grand Re-opening this weekend!

Swing Dancing feat. Andrew Vogt

Thursday, 2/20 – 7:00 to 11:00pm

Do any of you longtime regulars remember the “No Swing Dancing” sign? Not only has that sign been retired, but now we’re inviting and encouraging you to come out and dance in our new space. On Thursday night, we’ll be featuring Andrew Vogt, as he leads Bob Montgomery, Jo Asker and myself through a night of danceable Vintage favorites. We’ll have plenty of space on the Dance Floor in our newly renovated “Library,” where all of our Live Music is being featured going forward.

Briana Harris

Friday, 2/21– 8:00 to Midnight

The Subterraneans welcome back Briana Harris on Alto Sax. Bri has been incredibly busy with the Burroughs and other projects this Fall/Winter and we’re happy to have her help us kick off 2020 for our Grand Reopening Weekend! Bri will be joined by Jack Roben on guitar, Matt Smiley on bass and myself on drums.

Ben Markley Trio

Saturday, 2/22 – 8:00 to Midnight

Please join us as we welcome back the Ben Markley Trio, featuring Ben on piano, Bill McCrossen on bass and myself on drums. This group played last weekend for our “soft opening” and we all agree that the new setting for music sounds and feels great. Come on down to celebrate and see for yourself!

DJ Shaun Nolan

Monday and Tuesday, 2/24 and 2/25 – 6:00 to 11:00 pm

Our resident DJ Shaun Nolan will be spinning your Vinyl favorites on the freshly-renovated bar side of Ace Gillett’s. Be sure to browse our vintage vinyl collection – maybe you’ll find that musical gem that you haven’t heard in years?

 

P.S. Stay tuned for Ace Gillett’s Sunday Jazz Brunch, launching in Mid-March!

 

As always, thank you for supporting Live Jazz at Ace Gillett’s – I hope to see you there soon!
